Sice (1 syl.).
A sizing, an allowance of bread and butter. Hell print for a sice. In the University of Cambridge the men call the pound loaf, two inches of butter, and pot of milk allowed for breakfast, their sizings; and when one student breakfasts with another in the same college, the bed-maker carries his sizings to the rooms of the entertainer. (See SIZINGS.)
